Spanish minister upholds the country as safe for tourists

Published on : Thursday, July 15, 2021

Spain remains a secure place for tourists to visit, although there is a surge in Covid-19 cases triggering fresh restrictions in travel hotspots like Catalonia, said Spanish Tourism Minister Reyes Maroto.


“Spain at this time can be considered a safe destination,” Maroto said in a news conference following the Spanish government’s weekly cabinet meeting in Madrid.


Maroto said this after Catalan officials announced plans to impose a 10-person limit in social gatherings and all non-essential activity to end at 12:30 a.m. as the region takes fresh steps to reduce surge in infections.


With other regions including Valencia also imposing new restrictions, France and Germany have highlighted the risks of holidaying in Spain with Covid-19 cases on the increase once more. While the French health minister later said that people “shouldn’t panic,” the caution is indeed a setback for the Spanish tourism industry that accounts for 12% of the country’s economic output.
